Rebecca Evans AM, Assembly Member for Gower, has attended an event held by the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists (RCSLT) at the National Assembly to explore the way in which speech and language therapy can transform lives.
The Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists was established to promote the art and science of speech and language therapy. This involves the care for individuals with communication, swallowing, eating and drinking difficulties. At the event, the RCSLT’s therapists were on hand to demonstrate a variety of voice techniques that people can use to help protect their voices, and to provide a unique insight into how they work with patients to get voices back in shape following months of illness.
Speaking following the event, Mrs Evans said: “The work of speech and language therapists is extremely important. From helping children with additional needs to develop a voice in the first place, to helping those who have been through serious trauma regain their voice, speech and language therapists work to provide life-improving treatment to people of all ages. In doing so, they work closely with parents, carers and other professionals, such as teachers, nurses, occupational therapists and doctors."
